Saw this baby at the playground today, waiting by the trashcan for the trash man. Somervillains like to bring their giant plastic toys to the playground so other kids can use them, but nothing last forever (except maybe in a land fill). So some get cleared out and left by the road.

My son was playing with one that was still in working condition, so I knew he liked 'em. So I rescued this bit 'o plastic, added a few new bamboo roof supports and some duct-tape, and voila - good as old.
